2Jazz ChantsJazz chants are based on a combination of repetition and learned response. Jazz chants set everyday situational English to strong rhythms that give the user practice with pronunciation, stress and the patterns of English. The rhythm is the glue that holds the chant together and you find that the language “sticks” in your head and so aids learning.
3Jazz ChantsThey are like Raps, poems or dialogues with a clear steady beat and rhythm and the Chinese teachers respond well to the chants as they are familiar with this method of choral chanting.They are an effective and fun approach to language learning but they also provide a good way to model and then repeat.
